Yes My Service Dog May Accompany Me
Service Dogs are liberating people all the time and we are seeing more and more dogs out assisting people. These dogs are not pets they are working service animals. Unfortunately we are seeing some handlers being discriminated against. Recently a Veteran and his service dog were denied entry into a bar in Michigan. The Americans with Disabilities Act is very clear about where service animals can go and what an establishment can ask you about your service dog. This man should have not been denied entry to this establishment. It is up to the business owner to comply with these rules. However, service dog handlers need to be familiar with these laws so they may educate these business owners and employees in a calm and professional manor.
